Latin.png Latin text

Aspice, Domine, quia facta est desolata civitas plena divitiis.
Sedet in tristitia, domina gentium.
Non est qui consoletur eam, nisi tu, Deus noster.

Variant 1

Plorans ploravit in nocte, et lacrimae eius in maxillis eius.
Non est qui consoletur eam, nisi tu Deus noster.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Mira, Señor, cómo ha quedado desolada la ciudad antes llena de riquezas.
Está instalada en la tristeza;
No hay quien la pueda consolar, excepto tú, Dios nuestro.

English.png English translation

Behold, O Lord, how the city full of riches is become desolate.
She sits in mourning, the mistress of the nations.
There is none to comfort her save only thou, our God.

Variant 1

Weeping, she has wept all night, And her tears are on her cheeks.
There is none to comfort her save only thou, our God.
